Teenager’s ICU Ordeal Revealed in Text Message Battle Leading Up to Brutal Attack at Missouri School

St. Louis, Missouri – A violent altercation outside a high school has left a teenage girl, Kaylee Gain, gravely injured and in critical condition. The incident, captured on camera and shared widely on social media, sparked outrage and raised questions about the circumstances leading up to the brutal attack.

The father of the 16-year-old victim has come forward with text messages exchanged between his daughter and the alleged attacker in the days before the incident. According to reports, both teenagers had agreed to meet and settle their dispute with a physical fight.

Despite claims of bullying and harassment, Kaylee’s parents emphasize that the messages revealed a mutual agreement to engage in violence. The situation escalated on March 8th when a physical confrontation near Hazelwood East High School resulted in Kaylee sustaining a skull fracture and severe swelling on her brain.

Following the assault, a 15-year-old girl was arrested and is currently facing assault charges. However, there is uncertainty surrounding whether she will be charged as an adult. Meanwhile, a petition has been circulating online, advocating for the teen not to be charged as an adult, citing her academic achievements and self-defense claim.

Kaylee’s road to recovery has been long and arduous, with weeks spent in critical condition in the hospital. Though she has made progress, including being able to breathe on her own and leaving the intensive care unit, she still requires speech and movement therapy. The teenager’s father has shared that she often struggles to understand what happened and how she ended up in the hospital.

Amidst the physical and emotional challenges, Kaylee’s family and legal team are navigating the aftermath of the incident, including addressing a prior altercation that resulted in suspensions for both Kaylee and another student. The lingering effects of the traumatic event have taken a toll on the teenager’s well-being and left her family seeking justice and closure.
